U.S. Vehicles with Unfixed Recalls Tops 47 Million
More than 47 million vehicles that people are driving, buying or selling in the United States have at least one unfixed safety recall, according to Carfax. The company’s annual research on the issue suggests a net increase of more than 1 million vehicles from last year. Additionally, each state now has at least 100,000 vehicles with an open recall.
Drivers who own an SUV or minivan — or who live in Texas, Mississippi, Alaska, Utah or West Virginia — are the most likely to have an unfixed recall, according to Carfax.
This comes as NHTSA has disclosed that new recalls were issued for over 51 million vehicles in 2015, which is the most ever in a year.
